As an experienced and successful physical therapist, John O'Halloran believes that therapists must respond by logic and thought when dealing with a patients’ problems rather than habit and routine. "Every treatment is a form of hypothesis testing", he says. "The evaluation never ends."
This course focuses on examination and intervention of complex shoulder impairments. Rehabilitation of the shoulder requires a delicate balance between improving soft tissue mobility and neuromuscular control. However, elimination of a patient's pain does not mean a long-term successful outcome.
A good, sound orthopedic screening examines the patient as a "whole” versus as a "joint” or "tissue” diagnosis and will allow the clinician the ability to address present and potential predisposing factors. This course teaches clinicians about documentation tools and therapeutic treatment parameters, effective assessment, treatments for common shoulder disorders and more.

This continuing edcuation course is intended to instruct the professional through a study on the assessment and treatment of common shoulder disorders.
At the end of this course the professional will be able to:
- Recognize current evidenced based findings for assessment techniques.
- Recognize treatment and procedures to address common shoulder disorders such as impingement syndrome.
- Identify creative therapeutic exercises and techniques that consider all functional planes of movement and incorporates the evidenced based kinetic link model.
- Identify shoulder joint pathology with indication for joint or soft tissue mobilization.
- Demonstrate how to sequence your manual therapy techniques with common scapular, thoracic and glenohumeral dysfunctions.
Criteria for Completion:
A score of 70% or more is considered passing. Scores of less than 70% indicate a failure to understand the material and the test will need to be taken again until a passing score has been achieved
